Re: Broken Tibia and Fibia

I broke both bones on June 12th and had surgery on June 16th. I got a metal plate and 7-8 screws. I got my cast off this past Monday and the x-ray showed that there is still a break above the metal plate on the stabilizer bone and a gap between the bones. The doctor didn't seemed worry, but how can it heal if the bones are not even touching? I am in a velcro boot now. I am wondering if I should get another opinion.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
